Derrick Rose could wait until next season to play
When Derrick Rose said he “wouldn’t mind missing this year”, Wednesday, in Boston, it was music to my ears.
I can search my tweets and find several instances where I share in his sentiment.
He’s doesn’t feel ready to come back (the leg isn’t quite right) and none of his fans want to see a half-baked D Rose on the court. No one wants him to take an unnecessary chance on returning to the Bulls only to have a relapse of some sort. Un uh. It ain’t worth it. We want a healthy “Pooh.”
When rose went down last April with an ACL tear, for many, the world stopped. For him, HIS world began all over again with the healing of his body, heart and mind, and include the birth of his son, P.J., and a new an improved Derrick has emerged.
Applause is on order for the young prince of the South Side for being mature enough to understand what’s at stake (his, and kudos to Chicago Bulls brass for “falling back” and allowing him all the time he needs.
It’s really on me to make a decision when I’m going to play again. So that’s cool that they left it up to me,” he said. “That’s the last thing I’m thinking about, coming back too soon. I know it’s all on me. I’ve just got to make a decision when I’m ready.
That’s right, Derrick. Do you. We’ll wait.
